precautions for an event like that with extra security but they had no idea -- there were no threats ahead of time. no intelligence that this event might be targeted. >> obama: we certainly increase posture around a big event like this. all of those things happened in preparation for this event but there was no specific intelligence that anything was going to happen. >> bill: what can we draw from this? i would love to get your thoughts on it. 1-866-55-press. it certainly is a reminder that, you know, we are not safe, not even here in our own soil, in our own homeland. particularly post-september 11th, it is a reminder there are people both here in this country and around the world who don't like us, don't like what we stand for don't like who we are. we'll take advantage of every opportunity to do harm to us. it also -- i think we saw again yesterday, the real heroism on the part of so many people. and the only silver lining to this event it seems to me was that there were so many of the runners had already finished, right? maybe 2/3 of the runners, i heard, had already finished the race.
to approach the standoff. >> stephanie: boy, security has been incredible between all of this going on now, and the president was there speaking about the boston marathon victims. >> obama: yes, we will find you and yes, you will face justice. we will find you. we will hold you accountable, but more than that, our fidelity to our way of life to a free and open society will only grow strong stronger god has not given us the spirit of fear, but one of power and love and self discipline. >> stephanie: if you just tuned in, we're with david shuster from current tv and the first suspect has been killed the second one as far as we know is holed up in a house. the city -- david what does that mean that boston is on lockdown? what does that mean exactly? >> earlier this morning and this would be longer than two hours ago. and police seem to have focused on this one particular complex or block in watertown, but before that, police asked that the entire city be shutdown, that they stop public transportation, buses, trains, shut down the airports all essentially to try to freez
trying to get some of those questions answered immediately. president obama doesn't have anything on his public schedule today, but i am told that he will be in contact with his national security team when needed to get briefed on the ongoing investigation into not only what motivated these two brothers but also into whether they had any accomplices, and those are some of the questions, some of the first questions that they're going to want to resolve. so president obama, craig, was very careful not to come out last night and address the public until there had been an arrest, until he felt as though he had all of the information, but he was being briefed behind the scenes here. he had a briefing with his entire national security team in the situation room and then again with a smaller group of top advisers in the oval office. during that meeting he placed phone calls boston mayor tom menino and massachusetts governor deval patrick. so there's a lot going on behind the scenes as the white house continues to monitor what is an ongoing investigation, ongoing situation, but there is no doubt
condition. president obama now says the bombings are being treated as an act of terror. the boston police commissioner says no one is in custody in connection with the bombings. the f.b.i. refuses comment. and security beefed up for the new york stock exchange in wake of the bombing ones and cheryl is there for the hour. cheryl? cheryl: dennis, hello and yes, it is frankly, a normal looking day anyway here in front of the new york stock exchange. security as it always is at the stock exchange is tight. tourists from around the world, every day coming to the site but today is a different day for those focused on what happened in boston. here in new york city, mayor bloomberg making a point to say he's going to put 1,000 extra counterterrorism officers around the streets of manhattan. there's extra security here, in times square, at the train stations, the airports in the new york area all because this city knows all too well what it is like to be attacked. there's been 16 known terror plots foiled between september 2001 and today. the most recent, october of 2012 so this city on high alert
the bombs exploded seconds apart. president obama calling it an act of terror but saying no group foreign or domestic claimed responsibility for the attack. at this point, joining me now is jeffrey deedee, a security consultant, trained with boston police s.w.a.t. team. thank you for being with us. what we know now about the bomb, apparently in a pressure cooker device, both devices hidden in a backpack, low to the ground, perhaps placed on the street. what do you make of what you're hearing about the devices? >> well, i'm alarmed by what i'm hearing about the devices, because i stand -- i got back last year after nine months in afghanistan, and these pressure cookers are a tactic, technique that is used by the taliban and by al qaeda in afghanistan. very effective weapons, they try to pick the pressure cookers up wherever they can, and they use them to make their ieds. and quite concerned that this is a ttt as they call it in the military that -- >> ttp. >> tactic, technique and -- but the ttp -- procedures -- things of the taliban that we're now seeing here. that doesn't mean it was the
to the middle east. this man's job when he was at the secret service -- protect president obama with 1.8 million people on the washington mall gathered for his first inauguration. >> you can't guarantee anything. all you do in the field of security is reduce the probe ability of an event like this to something so miniscule if something does happen your response element afterward is enough to keep the casualties to a minimum. >> many americans have grown tired of war, tsa checkpoints and heavy security at sporting events. former national director of counterterrorism says the threat remains very real. >> if this turns out to be either domestic or international terrorism it will remind people of the difficulty of the tasks that we have been working against over the past ten years. >> reporter: experts say that while we can certainly prevent and address more security issues than we did before 9/11, trying to protect a soft target like a marathon is just increasingly difficult and they point out that a terrorist only has to find the weakest, softest point and attack there. of course that's where we'r
. juliette kayyem is here, our homeland security analyst, columnist for "the boston globe." jake tapper is here, anchor for "the lead." the last -- >> november 29th mitt romney came to the white house. had a private meal with president obama, a lunch in the private dining room. they talked about the future of the country. they had a conversation that was pretty much kept off the record. and talking about romney talking about ideas he had for the country and things he wanted to have done had he been elected. this will be the first time they've been together since that moment. it's moments like these that really put aside partisan labels. and you have democrats, republicans, coming together and not even thinking about politics. >> no politics on this day. mitt romney is there. there are democrats, republicans, but they're bostonians, they're people from massachusetts. first and foremost, their hearts go out to those who have suffered. >> today is about obviously remembering what happened monday. but it's also, i sort of also view it as preparing people for what might happen in the days an
was briefed overnight as this situation developed by his homeland security and counterterrorism adviser lisa monaco. the white house is in very close contact with the fbi, as well. while the white house is monitoring the situation right now, don't expect president obama or the white house is really be interjected into this at this point. obviously this is very much an evolving situation. a fast-moving situation. we're not really expecting to hear anything of substance from the white house, i would say, until this sort of comes to a conclusion. again, president obama up to date overnight, and this morning on what's going on there in boston. in newtown. he will continue to monitor the events there. >> all right, thank you very much, brianna keilar at the white house for us this morning. again, president obama just here yesterday lifting the spirits of boston as part of that memorial service. very different morning as the manhunt for one of the suspects is very much under way. >> to bring you up to speed, there is a manhunt under way for one of the two suspects in the boston marathon terrorist
to president obama, our condolences, but also offering russia's assistance in any type of investigation. and today, the father of those two suspects did tell cnn that he was questioned by russian security services and then released. wolf? >> the father being in dagistan, that's actually part of russia. so president putin would be in charge of that whole area. so if he wants to order the father to be questioned by law enforcement, that is easily done in dagistan. >> that's true. and that whole area of chechnya, again, i think it's important to note that that is a very, and has been for years, a very violent area. and one of the suspects did say, if you had come from a place like that, terrorism might not be that important. so i think that's a significant kind of indication of what we're dealing with. >> jill dougherty reporting for us, thanks very much. michael bouchard is joining us now, formerly with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in washington, atf. what do you make of the latest developments, mr. bouchard? on the one hand, it's very perplexing that a 19-year-old who runs
reach. a third area of focuses is school safety. unfortunately, the obama administration in the past several years reduced funding for school safety by over $300 million. next to me are detailed the security our cools stkpwrapbts were cut $110 million in 2012. school safety initiative was cut $53 million in 2011. and the safe and drug-free schools grants were cut $184 million in 2010. this substitute restores funding for school safety. if the effort is to protect our kids -- and i know all 100 senators want to do everything we can to protect our kids. one of the most direct ways is to make sure there are resources on the ground protecting our kids. and so this bill would provide $3400 million in funding -- $300 million in funding, 30 million a year for ten years, to do exactly that, to provide funding for the secure our schools grants. a fourth area is improving the existing background checks as it concerns mental illness. if you look for a common theme among these mass murderers that we have seen recent years, one of the most disturbing things is we've seen person after person with
. president obama spoke this morning saying, among other things, that the bombings were an active terrorists. -- an act of terrorists. >> good morning, everybody. i've just been briefed by my national security team, including f.b.i. director muller, attorney general holder, secretary napolitano, and my counterterrorism and homeland security advisor, lisa monaco, on the attacks in boston. we continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously our first thoughts this morning are with the victims. their families and the city of boston. explosionst two gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others, including a 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the f.b.i.'s investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why, whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, f
